The former star of How I Met Your Mother moved into this brownstone house, located in Harlem, in 2013. Completely renovated by decorator Trace Lehnhoff and architect Jeffery Povero, it sold for a record $7.1 million.
Decorated with restored period objects and furniture reminiscent of the Harlem Renaissance, the parlor is both inviting and impressive.
The original woodwork has been carefully selected to match the decor.
Twelve-foot high ceilings match beautifully with the bright spaces in the main living area.
One of the five bedrooms, the main one, includes its own terrace and a fireplace. It’s the ultimate!
The main dining room links the professional quality kitchen to the living room.
The kitchen was designed according to the wishes of David Burtka, Neil’s husband, who is a chef. Indeed, the cordon-bleu had two high-end gas stoves, a refrigerator for liquids — and another for food — as well as large storage cupboards.
Of the six bathrooms, the main one has a Nero Marquina marble floor. It includes two sinks and a closed shower.
The home theater has 10 seats to see a new film or a classic, as evidenced by the posters on the walls!
Continuing the retro 1920s theme, the restored bar is from an old hotel in New York City.
An avid reader, Neil has filled the library over the years.
This small cozy living room is meticulously decorated to recall the Art Deco style and follow the theme of the 1920s.
